The Hyperion Omnibus : "Hyperion", "The Fall of Hyperion" Paperback
by Dan Simmons
Part of the Gollancz S.F. series
The Hyperion books are credited with single-handedly reinventing and reinvigorating SF in the 1990s.
A broad canvased, hugely imaginative and exciting SF epic, the books draw on the works of Keats and provide a uniquely intelligent and literary approach with cutting edge science, compelling characterisation and edge-of-your-seat excitement. The story is continued in ENDYMION and THE RISE OF ENDYMION, which Gollancz will also be publishing in an omnibus volume.

Eight out of ten.
On the world of Hyperion, there waits a creature called the Shrike housed in the Time Tombs. Worshipped and despised the Shrike waits patiently. Seven pilgrims set forth seeking the answers to the unsolved riddles of their lives. One may hold the fate of humanity in his hands.
